Welcome to the North Queensland Potters Association
NQPA is a dedicated group of potters who work together to form a not-for-profit association in Townsville.
Our aim is to promote pottery throughout North QLD and act as a catalyst for the pottery community in the region. Our studio at 15 Flowers St., Railway Estate, is well-equipped and provides a creative environment where members and students pottery skills are nurtured.
Please browse our classes and services in the tabs above and feel free to contact us for further information.
Our lovely studio is well-equipped for both wheel-throwing and hand-building and boasts a range of both electric and gas kilns. The studio spans both indoor and outdoor space allowing for various outdoor firing such as raku. Members also have access to an extensive resource library, with books available to borrow.
